3. Strengthens muscles:

We have always seen impressive images of cyclists at the end of a competition, where the muscular level is impressive for any spectator.

As we have commented at the beginning of the post, the bicycle is perfect for connecting with yourself and achieving the inner peace that you need at all times.

A large amount of endorphins are also released, which will serve to moderate the stress accumulated in the body . According to a study published by the BMJ open medical journal, cycling 3 days a week reduces the risk of stress by 52%.

If you are not in the habit of cycling, you can start practicing from home with an exercise bike or an indoor cycle , which can be less aggressive and more fun options to start with.

New technologies have also reached the world of two wheels and thanks to the new smartbikes , you can optimize the performance of your training in a fun way, thanks to the connection with the different training applications that offer you the possibility of competing against yourself or against other cyclists from around the world.

If what you want is to train alone , smartbikes also provide you with a brutal user experience, since you select a route from anywhere in the world and the bike adapts to the terrain virtually , simulating the slope of a port or a descent , even in some cases, such as the new Wahoo Kickr Bike v1 , simulating all the turns of the route.
